The friend I saw go down def had EZ rides. I am not sure how old they were or if there has been any chance in materials along the way.

Not sure on brand for the lady who mashed against a tree.

But I suspect there are a lot more people who have ridden in them with no issues (indeed, I did for a season and a half).

I hadn't thought of the aluminum smashing in like that - I'll keep using my aluminum ones until they're done, but I'll be be getting nylon ones next time I need them!

"Note: EasyCare has chosen a density of aluminum material that is intended to give, or crush, under pressure should a horse lie down, roll, or fall on the product. They consider this a safety feature so the material is less apt to gouge your horse. If this is of concern to you, we suggest the E-Z Ride Nylon Stirrups."

I use the EZ Ride nylon ones, with cages now.

Rode my first season in the uncaged alum ones (in sneakers) with no problems.

LOL! They sure don't feel that fragile when the sharp edge of one bangs into my shin while I carry my saddle across the yard...OUCH! LOL!

I have the aluminum ones without cages right now. I am going to order the nylons with cages. My horse doesn't like the way the aluminum ones feel when I first put the saddle on. I try to be careful because she gets unhappy if they bang on her sides. I guess she will like the nylon. I am not sure what size I need. I guess I'll have to measure.

Hey when you get them, put them on and have someone take a pic of your feet in them...I would love to see them on someones feet! LOL! (I promise I don't have a fetish or anything ) I just want to see how they look! I've had my aluminy ones for so long...heck they probably didn't make nylon ones back then.
